Art isn’t funny. Or is it?
Recently released is Steve Martin’s book, “An Object of Beauty.” This isn’t a blogger’s book review, as this author is yet to read his latest. This post is more like a review of Mr. Martin’s interviews in the press surrounding his book release – needless to say, as a collection, very entertaining. Steve is an entertainer, but what is wonderful about this series of interviews, is what we are able to learn about the art world. They all take us down a quick art history lesson.
The first segment shown is with Stephen Colbert from The Colbert Report. Steve Martin takes a quick art quiz.
The second is the extended segment from the Colbert Report that introduces us to a few contemporary legends in art.
This next segment is from CBS Sunday Morning. Steve Martin is interviewed by Rita Braver who uncovers Steve’s ties to the art world. Click here to watch the video.
